Vendor-Agnostic, Intent-Based Networking System Delivers Network Agility and Uptime for Data Center Networks

MENLO PARK, CA – April 24, 2017 – Apstra®, Inc., the pioneer in vendor-agnostic Self-Operating Networks™ has been included in the Gartner, Inc. report: “Gartner Cool Vendors in Enterprise Networking, 2017”. The Apstra Operating System™ (AOS) is a vendor-agnostic, intent-based networking system that dramatically improves network agility, uptime and data center network economics.

According to the Gartner Cool Vendors Report¹ “I&O leaders responsible for networking must transform their networks from fragile to agile to facilitate digital business initiatives.” Gartner goes on to include that “As organizations transition toward digital business models, there is a simultaneous need for increased network agility and high availability, which is very difficult to achieve simultaneously.”

“The enterprise network is viewed today as a barrier to overall infrastructure agility which directly impacts a company’s bottom line,” said Mansour Karam, CEO and founder of Apstra, Inc. “AOS enables a true vendor-agnostic Self-Operating Network that offers game-changing network service agility, uptime and massively improved infrastructure TCO. Apstra appreciates being recognized as a Gartner Cool Vendor for its full Intent-Based Networking System (IBNS).”

Gartner had highlighted earlier in the report, Innovation Insight: Intent-Based Networking Systems,² that it believes that “a full Intent-Based Networking System (IBNS) implementation can reduce network infrastructure delivery times to the business leaders by 50% to 90%, while simultaneously reducing the number and duration of outages by at least 50%.”

Apstra Operating System
AOS automatically prevents and repairs network outages for dramatically improved infrastructure uptime. It operates a network as one system massively improving infrastructure agility while reducing operational expenses. AOS’ distributed data store is a repository of all intent, configuration, and telemetry state, hence acts as a single source of truth for your network. Its self-documenting nature streamlines compliance tasks. AOS is device agnostic and works across all major vendors as well as open alternatives.
